Glen never met a stranger who remained a stranger for long. Even at his most physically weak stage in life, the doctors had to tell him to quit talking so he could breathe. We all thought he loved to talk almost more than eat. Glen spent much of his free time attending his great nieces’ and nephews’ football, baseball and basketball games. He was extremely proud of his daughter, Cassie and her accomplishments in life and looked forward to her graduation from Oklahoma City University next year. Children of all ages knew and loved “Uncle Glen” because he was, according to them a nice, gentle kind man.
